Beast Boy, Deathstroke And More Bleeding Cool Dark Crisis Gossip

I think we've been doing pretty good at Dark Crisis gossip on Bleeding Cool, don't you think? Here are a few notes to throw into the pot. Feel free to continue rotting them up.

  1. The way for a Lantern to defeat a Shazam is to cover their mouth with a construct. Easy.
  2. Beast Boy has lost an eye, looking more and more like Deathstroke
  3. Deathstroke is looking more and more like Spawn. Well he had done a deal with the devil.
  4. Titans stand up to Shazadam.
  5. Dark Crisis: The Deadly Green will explore the idea expressed in the last issue that The Great Darkness is not the baddie. That Pariah is controlling it and influencing it, and that it is Deathstroke, who is spreading the Great Darkness amongst the population, the heroes and the villains. It has no agency of its own…
  6. Talking of which, they may be published on the same day. But you will want to read Swamp Thing before Dark Crisis #5
  7. We have had a World Without Superman. We have had a World Without The Justice League. Now we will have Superman With A World.
  8. Wonder Woman still has to escape from her world. Talking of which Etta Candy may be a two-term President in Wonder Woman's world, but she is also made an honorary Amazon. Might Diana want to carry that fantasy on to Earth Prime? Or does she have her own Wonder Woman Zur En Arrh to worry about?
  9. While Martian Manhunter prefers a world that is all octopus noir, all the time. I get that…
